Mid-70’s and brisk NE winds for a counterclockwise circumnavigation of town for our group of 20. Found the pace to be too much a few miles before my westside turnoff and gladly traded the promise of a cold fruit beer for a shower and a hot meal instead. Oof.
Pics are thin due to me doing good to stay in the group much less take pics.

Dub threw a code today in its charming cryptic German-engineered way: Emissions Workshop!, pulled as P2112, Internet hive-mind points to intake manifold control flap and after an hour or so I’ve determined mine is a D shaped connector and luckily failed(?) in the open position:
As a note, it should be open 5 seconds after the engine shuts down. The way to test it is via vagcom or watching the actuation while a helper cycles the key from the start position (the one before actually engaging the starter) to off with intake duct removed. Isn’t making the chattering noise of stripped gears so maybe it’s fine. Now to find the vagcom test procedure since running an open engine seems bad….
Also discovered an alarming amount of crud in the EGR:
boring honda, toyota, kia, hyundai seem pretty nice about now….
maybe this laser blue one on 19” helios will help:

Southbound journey through Camargo before the real heat set in. Upper 80’s to finish would have finished me had I bit off any more to chew. Nice to be back on the race bike.
